Hi, I'm Liz from the Western NY area. I just got my PM confirmation & I'm looking forward to both reading the book & discussing it with all of you. It's great to see a lot of names I know! I know it'll be a great discussion.
Hi my name is Kim, I am also from the Western New York Area ('burb north of buffalo)... Hi Liz, where abouts in the area are you?
I am a recently single mother of three ( 2 boys... 11 & 4 and 1 girl... 9) My children are my haert and soul and my books are my treasures, and I love to treasure hunt for new things to add to my collection. I will read anything that catches my eye, is suggested, makes a list, is assigned, I will even read a book I don't necessary care for until the end because who knows... I may like the ending!
I am really looking forward to our discussions!

I got my message - I'm in - and so happy! I was in The House of Riverton - my "newbie" experience - and not sure I've graduated yet to the next level! Loved the book and the experience!! I'm from Wisconsin, age 50, have grown kids and very young grandchildren - so trips to the library now include story times for the kids! Like you all, I'm rarely seen without a book in hand and love most, if not all genres! AND YES - there's nothing like the sensation of opening a new book!! Am looking forward to talking with all of you! Terrie

I'm happy to be included in this second book. I read the House at Riverton and enjoyed reading all the comments. I didn't post last time but hope to this time.
Does anyone have a suggestion for a good romance novel. This is what my local book club is looking for. My suggestion is Rebecca. We need more than one. Thanks
My favorite last year was "Tiger Eye" by Marjorie Liu.

Welcome to the book club! You may have some more luck posting a query in Romantic Reads, in fact, we have a number of romance authors hanging out there. Good luck!

I am glad to see so many participants, many of whom I know, but even more new faces! I look forward to reading and talking with all of you.
Reading gives us someplace to go when we have to stay where we are.

The Sister sounds like a great book; like the rest of you, I'm anxious to get started on it!

I'm LyndaSue fresh off of House at Riverton. It was a wonderful experience to read and discuss a new book, unfamiliar to us all and look forward to doing the same with The Sister.
I too grew up loving books and always carry one with me. You just never know when you'll have to wait for a train to pass, geese to cross or heavy traffic, and why waste the opportunity

It is with books as with men; a very small number play a great part.

Just curious..has anyone gotten a return PM saying they got the book yet? Because there are so many request, I am sure it will take a while to get them out, but just wondering it ANYONE has gotten one yet?? ;-)
Yes. I got mine today. I am sure you will get yours in the next day or so.

I got my acceptance today! This is the first time I have joined a book club and I am looking forward to it. I work full time, school full time, and have 3 kids and a grandchild on the way. I enjoy reading many kinds of books and when I read my 5 kitty cats enjoy sitting with me
I reside in California - glad to meet everyone.

This will be my first time joining a book club and I greatly looking forward to it. Any tips or tricks that anyone can pass on would be greatly appreciated! My favorite authors include: Johnathan Kellerman, Iris Johansen, Patricia Cornwell & Perri o'Shaunessy.

Although I liked reading The House at Riverton, I was challenged keeping up with all of the posts from the book club members. I was thrilled when I received the PM confirming my enrollment in The Sisters' book club. I am looking forward to reading something new.
On a personal note, I am searching for a teaching job in central New Jersey and am the proud human of a playful blue-eyed, white long-haired cat.

Denise here from Iowa. I'm so excited to be included in the First Look: The Sister book club. My first club was The House at Riverton, but I got a late start and found it hard to keep up with the chapter postings. So this time I'm ready to get the book started and stay on track. Read you in the POSTS!
